FAQ- Frequently Asked Questions.

How finely filtered are ACSI Bulk Inks?

The liquid inks which ACSI Bulk Inks sells are classified into two categories:
  • Dye-based Inks
  • Pigmented Inks
  • Dye-based Inks

    Our Dye-based inks are filtered to 0.2 microns absolute. This means that 99.99% of all particles larger than 0.2 microns are removed by our filtration system.

    Pigmented Inks

    Our pigmented inks are filtered to 0.45 microns absolute. This means that 99.99% of all particles larger than 0.45 microns are removed by our filtration system.

    Explanation of Terms

    The following terms are useful for comparing filtration claims from different manufacturers.
    • 1 Micron - 1/1,000,000 of a meter, or 1/1000 of a millimeter.

    • Absolute - when discussing filters, "absolute" means removal of 99.99% of all particles larger than the designated filtration size. This means that only 1 in 10,000 particles remains.

    • Nominal - when discussing filters, "nominal" means removal of 98.5% of all particles larger than the designated filtration size. This means that about 1 in 67 particles remains.
